HYPNOTISM AND CP-u:E.
Remarkable Experiments Made by a French Scientist. &n Important Problem in Medical Juris prudence.-Tests Applied to a French Lady and a Soldier-Result of the Experiments. According to the London St. James' GazeteS X. Jules Liegeois, Professor of the Faculty of Law at Nancy. has lately made some re markable experiments connected with hypnotism. It is already well known that a subject who has been thrown into a hypnot ic trance will, upon awakening, immediate ly execute any "suggestion." however crim 'inal. that has been made during sleep by a person who possesses the dangerous power of absolutely directing the will of another. The object of Mr. Liegeois' experiments was to ascertain if it would be possible, when a crime had been committed by a hypnotic subject, to discover the author of the criminal suggestion, who in such a case would obviously be the really guilty party. This important problem in medical juris prudence has for some time attracted a grnat deal of interest in France, and a num ber of lawyers and medical men were pres ent during the experiments. Here is one of the experiments out of .many: A lady who was well known to be a hypnotic subject was thrown into an art ficial sleep, and K. Liegeois then suggested to her that upon awakening she should shoot with a revolver a certain Monsieur O., who was supposed to have insulted her. She was enjoined to say, if she .was questioned, that M. Liegeois had held -no communication with her upon the sub ject, and that she had not been under the influence of any one, but had acted entirely ,of her own volition. A revolver loaded with ablank charge having been placed up on a table close at hand, the lady was awak ened. The instant she perceived Monsieur 0., who was in the room, she seized the re volver and fired at him. She was then again put to sleep, this time by Dr. Lie bault, who played the part of medico-legal .expert and proceededtointerrogate her. The lady at once admitted the supposed crime, and, in obedience to the injunction she had received, stoutly demed all suggestion. So far it seemed that there was a certain means of escape for the real criminal who had suggested the supposed murder; but an ingenious test was then resorted to which proved that the suggester was never very safe after all. K. Liebault made these three suggestions: "(1) When you see the insti gator of your crime enter the room you must go to sleep for the space of two min utes; (2) when you awaken you must look fixedly at him and not take your eyes from his until I say 'That will do;' (3) you must then stand in front of him and endeavor, by extending your skirts, to conceal him from view." The lady was awakened, and in a short time M. Liegeois, who had suggested the shooting, . came into the room, in which about a dozen persons were assem -bled. Almost at once she went to sleep. In about two minutes she awoke, fixed her gaze steadfastly upon 3L Liegeois, and fol lowed him, step by step, round the room. M. Liegeois went into another apartmeut, the lady following him. He sat down, and :she at once extended her dress in front of him, as though to conceal him. When she regained her normal condition, she remeni bored nothing of what had happened K. Liegeois' experiments do not stand alone. Prof. Bernheim applied almost iden -tical tests to a soldier who had returned from Tonquin. He compelled him, by sug gestion, to steal a five-franc piece, and en joined him not to admit that he had been ;hypnotized. When interrogated as to why he had committed the theft, he replied that he did it "because the idea occurred to him," and took an oath that the act had not been suggested to him. Thereupon the soldier was again operated upon, and while he wvas inmthe hypnotic sleep he was told: " When you see the person who suggested to you to ~steal, you must go up to him and say, 'I am very glad to see you. Please sing me the *Marseillaise.'" The subject obeyed these injunctions to the letter. He was then again put to sleep and ask'ed to reveal the name of the in stigator of the theft; but he once more denied that there had been any sugges tion. Nevertheless Prof. Bernheim said to hbim: "When you see the instigatoreof the robbery, you must say: 'I remember you perfectly;it was you who told me tosteaL'" Themoment he was awakened he went up to the professor and repeated the suggested phrase. It would thus seem to be toler ably clear -that although a hypnotized per son willnot reveal in a direct way the name of a person under whose infiuence he has been, he will reveal it in an indirect way. He will do nothing that he has been cate gonially forbidden to do; and that is all. This being so, it is clear tliat in certain cir sumstances the author of a criminal sug gestion would assuredly be discovered. But these experiments taire no account of a very .mportsat contingency-the possible, and indeed probable, absence from the scene of thesuggester of a crune. The whole sub ject of hypnotism is very curious and im portant from the point of view of medical jurisprudenee;- since it is obvious that un der cover of "suggestions" the most atro ciouis crimes could be committed. Happily Shore is good reason to believe that the numbeof persons eapable of being hypao Sized is comparatively small; and it is doubtful whether, after all, hypnotic sug gestion would be of much use to the boldest and zgost adroit villain-except, of course, in 3 "shullngshocker." *A Good Face to Havetd Memory of Events: This is shown by a wide, full forehead in the center. Reasoning Power: A high, long and well defined nose and a broad face exhibits this great faculty. Moral Courage: This facultyv manifests Itself by wide nostrils, short neck, and eyes set directly in front. Language: This faculty is exhibited in many parts of the face, particularly by a large mouth and large, full eyes, openen wide. Self-esteem: This faculty shows itself in a long or deep ubper lip. Larre sclf-estoem gives one digtity, sell-control and perfect independence. Firmness: The presence of this faculty, when very large, is indicated by a long, broad chin. Firmness is synonymous wish wilfulness, perseverance and stability. -Perception of Character: This is indicated by a long, high nose at the lower end or tip. This faculty is very useful, if not indispen sable, to a judge in the exercise of the funic tions of his office. Powers of Observation: The situation of this faculty is in the face just above the tip of the nose,filling out the forehead to a level with the parts on each side of the nose. It isa faculty which enables one to concen trate the mind upon the subject being dis cussed. Conscientiousness: This is shown in the face by a square jaw, a bony chin, prom lnentcheekbones, and a general squareness of the features of the entire face. To be censcientious means that one has a sense of justdce, honesty of purpose, rectitude of shamate- and moral courage. As the boy is the father of the man, it follows that the girl is the m"mher of the woman; and together they ar e not slow in honoring their father and their mother. Horses and the public suffer alhke in this country from a superfluity of j'ckey clubs soumeof which would not exist over night if there were laws against turf gamibling. We are all dissatisfied. T be only differ ence is that some of us sit down in the squalor of our dissatisfaction, while others make a ladder of it. A thrifty animal is the snake: it can al ways make both ends meet.

It restores the Liver to proper working order, regulates thesecre tion of bile and puts the digestive organs in such condition that they can do their best work. After taking this medicine no one will say, "I am bilious." "I have been subject to severe spells of Con gestion of the Liver. and have bEh in the habit of taking from I5 to 20 grains of calomel which gen erally laid me up for three or four days.

In either disease Paine's Celery Compound will surely effect a cure, and there will no longer be any cause to complain of " poor backs." Hundreds of testimonials like the follow ing confirm our claims for that grand old remedy, Paines's Celery Compound: " Two weeks ago I could not sleep more than an hour at a time any night, was constipated and kidr.eys did not act, ., and had a good deal of pain in the back. Since I took Paine's Celery Compound the pain has left my back, and I can sleep like a child." Zenas Sanders, West Windsor, Vermont. "Having been troubled with rheumatism for five years, I was almost unable to get around, and was very often con fined to my bed for weeks at a time. I have used nearly all medicines imaginable, besides outside advices, but to no advan tage. Having seen Paine's Celery Com r pound advertised, I gave it a trial.
